Los Angeles Angels vs. Los Angeles Dodgers Prediction

The Los Angeles Angels will pitch left-handed pitcher Jose Suarez. He has a 1-3 record and a 4.79 ERA on the season.

Basically, if the pitcher isn't Shohei Ohtani, the Angels are probably not going to win.

Anyway, Suarez has a 4.68 xFIP in the last 30 days but has been able to earn 26.3% strikeouts along with just 6.6% of walks. Still, Suarez has allowed 26% of line drive contact in the last 30 days and has only induced 30% of ground balls. That's not going to help his cause.

On the other hand, the Dodgers have been hitting lefties well with their projected lineup, smacking an ISO of .203 and a wOBA of .351 in the last 30 days. The Dodgers have struck out 23.1% of the time with their projected lineup, but this lineup also hits 25.7% of line drives against lefties in the last 30 days.

Meanwhile, the Dodgers will send out Julio Urias, who is 7-6 with a 3.01 ERA on the season. In comparison to his opponent, Suarez, Urias has been much better recently. He's holding a 3.88 xFIP with 28.8% of strikeouts and 6.7% of walks. Urias also has limited line drives while keeping balls in the yard at a high rate.

Plus, he'll take on one of the worst lineups in baseball, despite having two of the best players in our generation. The Angels have Shohei Ohtani and Mike Trout but still struggle to win games and score runs. Trout will likely be sitting out of tonight’s game with a back injury, but Ohtani will be in the lineup.

Even against lefties, Ohtani has a .080 ISO and is striking out 27.3% of the time in the last 30 days. As a whole, the Angels have a .114 ISO and wOBA of .268 against lefties with 25.6% of strikeouts using their projected lineup without Trout. And to make matters worse, this Angels lineup has also hit over 50% of ground balls, and just 17% of line drives against lefties in the last 30 days. It’s a terrible lineup, especially without Trout. 

So with that said, give me the Dodgers on the run line, on the road.
